Regarding "Commission candidate downplays bankruptcy" (Metro, Sept. 26): The market place is volatile whether it's real estate or equities. It is up to the smart business person to know when to buy and when to lease, taking into account the volatility of the market. The key here is that we have a person (Margaret Iuculano) who claims to be a successful business person and proposes using those skills to manage our county's budgets, as well as make critical decisions regarding investing in our future. Small business owners have financial problems and failures every day; however, they are not seeking to manage our money for us. The skills she has acquired are questionable, at best.
